Mino Early, ekofrö
|Latin name:||s sativus var. longipinnatus|
|Days to maturity:||50|
SowingSow 1-2 cm deep! Modern slow-to-bloom hybrids should be sown in early spring. The normal seed-consistent standard sorts, like Mino Early, should be sown from mid July because of their tendency to bloom under our many hours of light in summer which delights the bees enormously. Roots for storage should be sown in mid July.
SpacingThin out to 15-20 cm of mutual space and keep 35-50 cm between the rows.
HarvestBegin harvesting as soon as the daikons have reached edible size. Roots for storage should be harvested in late autumn and treated in the same way as carrots. Daikon can take some frost but must thaw out completely before harvest.
Roots which are blooming because of too early sowing are not lost. On the contrary, the seed-pods are thick and plump and very spicily delicious, fresh or cooked
Seed50-80 seeds/1g, one portion sows several meters, and about 20 g sows 100 m and 500-800 g for 1000 m2.
A portion contains about 150 seeds.
